Hatch Canada founder and CEO Peter Kuperman invests in the next wave of technology leaders by teaching children how to code through his organization. Apart from his career, Peter Kuperman is a longtime supporter of humanitarian aid organizations and has recently focused his efforts on finding ways to help Syrian refugees.

Organizations such as UNICEF and The Red Cross are among the more well-known groups aiding Syrian refugees, but other groups that are not as high-profile are also doing important work. Hand in Hand for Syria provides direct support within Syria. Rather than provide help to people who are leaving the country, this organization is focused on supporting those who are choosing to stay. Supporting their efforts through justgiving.com helps to provide food and other necessities to Syrians who are either unwilling or unable to flee.

In addition, The International Medical Corps is a group providing medical relief to Syrian refugees who are escaping to nearby countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. They have one such station set up in Gaziantep, which is close to the war-torn Aleppo area that has seen mass casualties during the conflict.
